Three new directors join board of London Internet Exchange

Three new non-executive directors have been appointed to the board of the London Internet Exchange (LINX).

Healther Islip (general manager of VBnet), Ian Mason (UK operations manager at Gigabell), and Neil McRae (head of engineering and operations at COLT Internet) have filled vacancies to bring the six member board back to full strength.

LINX is a non-profit-making organisation owned by more than 100 leading Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from the UK, USA and continental Europe. It operates facilities which connect the networks of its members and currently carries around 98 per cent of the UK's regional Internet traffic.

The directors set the strategic direction for LINX. Operations are managed by a team of 17 engineers and management staff.

Heather Islip has been manager of Bristol-based ISP VBCnet since 1995. Her previous career has included sales, engineering and management posts and she has lived in the USA, Germany and Japan as well as in the UK.

Neil McRae is responsible for the design and implementation of COLT Telecom Group plc's Internet network and services. Before joining Colt he held engineering positions with Easynet and Demon.

Ian Mason is responsible for engineering management at Gigabell. He has previously held technical posts with Zoo Internet, Creative Logic and Convergent Solutions and has worked as a journalist for PC Pro and PC Magazine.

Grahame Davies, board chairman, said: "Having these highly experienced people on the board will help to ensure that LINX remains the undeniable leader in interconnect services in Europe."
